Summary

Crispin Mayo was a reckless young brawler who’d left his tiny fishing village for the vast American frontier. Headed west to join a railroad construction crew, he came upon an isolated station - and a mystery. The shack was abandoned, but fresh blood spattered the floor, and the telegraph was clicking away unattended. When Mayo stepped inside and put a hand on the telegraph key, he had no way of knowing the course of his life would change forever - and that he would become entangled with a band of Civil War veterans with a score to settle against the government...and a feisty young woman who’d risk anything to save the people she loved. Cris Mayo, who had never backed away from a fight in his life, was about to have his courage put to the ultimate test.

Superb rendition. Stellar narrator.

Many times westerns seem like the same old story. Enough uniqueness in this one to stand out. Well worth the listen!

A very good story!

Louis L’Amour, once again, has delivered a very interesting and entertaining story. And, if there is another author who can describe a gunfight or a fistfight in such vivid detail I would like to read their words. I have not yet found that author.

Excellent

A variable version of a typical L'Amour style of tale. Loved the Irish characters utilized therein. I always appreciate his usage of courtesy, ethics, and common sense.

Another Great Louis L'Amour Story

I always finish these books quickly. We need more of the old west heroes today. This story is another intriguing can't put the book down tale.

Classic L'Amour

Great story and well written although narrator leaves a bit to be desired. Still worth the read despite the "flattish" monotone narrator.
